Broken Blossoms 1919

by Jim Morgan

#toppdflix The First Lady of Cinema, Lillian #Gish, and Richard Bartlemiss star in DW Giffith’s #silentera gem "Broken Blossoms." I don’t give out many 5s to movies but this one is real close to a 5 in my book. The acting is superb and I consider it a must-see. Caveat: This movie is incredibly sad and deals with some very dark subjects like child abuse, poverty and inter-racial relations. I would not recommend allowing small children to watch it. The copy I retrieved from #^http://www.archive.org/details/brokenblossoms1919 is a very clear copy. This movie is motion picture gold. Image/photo
